The Scapegaming servers look like they've been down since mid-July of this year, as a Google search revealed. Blizzard is going to gain nothing from beating a dead horse.

Actually, in this particular case, one thing Blizzard gets out of beating a dead horse is, they scare the crap out of all the other horses.If anyone else is thinking about forming a company to run private WoW servers that support microtransactions, this should at least make them think a little harder before doing it.

It's possible that Blizzard has been on this group for long enough that they shut down before the formal lawsuit was filed...

Wowscape, then later Scape gaming are a very tricky bunch. The have faced a lot of things like this. I believe last time they moved their servers out of the US so blizzard wouldn't have any jurisdiction to close their server. Not sure though, haven't talked to my old friends who play on private servers in a while.
